Volunteer Issues » Volunteer

We offer internships and volunteering opportunities for students and recent graduates throughout the year. These offer a great opportunity to gain valuable experience working on high impact projects for a grassroots NGO and help build your career in International Development and Social Enterprise fields. We have volunteers placed in both out Ahmedabad office and field offices, working in a variety of areas from Child Help Line to Labour Rights. Typically placements last three to six months. Please note that all volunteer opportunities and internships are unpaid.

The required skill set is dependent on the areas in need of support at the time. Overall, we target applicants who: 1) can commit to the minimum time frame, 2) are flexible by nature, 3) are open to all types of projects, 4) are comfortable with administrative responsibility, and 5) are looking to make a significant contribution in their time with DISHA.

If you would like to volunteer with us, please email disha@dishatrust.in send a copy of your cv and a motivational letter setting out what topic you would be interested in working, how you can best contribute (through research, outreach, administrative support etc), what skills and experience you can bring along with your availability.

Please note we have a small staff team, and due to the high numbers of applicants for internship positions, we regret that we can only respond to candidates that we would like to interview. We greatly appreciate your support and interest in working with DISHA, and hope to be able to expand our volunteer opportunities in the future.
